North West Responsible Business Awards

On 7 June 2016, we brought together over 250 North West business leaders and their guests along with community representatives and media to celebrate the powerful role and positive impact of business in society.

The Responsible Business Awards identify and celebrate the best of responsible business. The Awards identify and celebrate businesses from across the North West that are making a positive impact in their communities, schools, supply chains and workplaces.

Read the inspirational stories of how companies and organisations are making a real difference in the region; how they are tackling unemployment, working in schools to raise aspirations, improving the environment, while transforming their communities and creating diverse and vibrant places of work.

Hosted by BBC North West Tonight presenter Annabel Tiffin, this was an inspiring and enjoyable evening as well as an opportunity to meet and network with the region’s opinion formers.
